2nd GSG swap card
Well, this is the other card I made for the 2nd swap group I was in with my fellow GSG gals. I signed up with Teeny Tiny Wishes and was then kind of like, hmmm.... I didn't have any great ideas for how to make it be the focal image of my card. So, since no one had signed up for Animal Stories, I decided to do another stamped BG using a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and pop an embossed whale from Animal Stories up on the card. I also stamped a BG using the little whale on the card base, and added some of the yummy new Soft Suede 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon with a 5/16" Jumbo Brad in Whisper White for a little added detail, and tah-dah! I hope they like it - making 7 of these hand-stamped sentiment BG's and cutting out the little embossed whale was NOT quick or easy!!!!!
